Description

This is a varity of tetrahedrite, also called mercurian tetrahedrite. Very rare material and most times not this nice developed. The crystal (9mm in diameter) is isolated, sharp (more sharp as seen on my photography) and set on snowy white matrix. Really hard to obtain a sample of this mineral with this aesthetic. No significant damages to report.
